Rafael Soto what did you guys learn this year worth sharing?
🔚🔜 Bort Simpson Well said. It makes me sick that white men, who are all either racist or complicit in white supremacy, think they can just scutter to some other corner of the internet to spread their sick, perverted, dark fantasies of subjugation on The People. These animals need to be called out, blasted on the airwaves, and erased, full stop. Systemic and online white supremacy MUST END NOW. #BLM
🔚🔜 Bort Simpson Typical. What do you expect from a bunch of white men... exactly, racism.
🌝 William Nilliams I know it's not what you intended, but it's a little dehumanizing to suggest that diversity of race, sex, and orientation alone improves an online discussion. Everyone has agency and is capable of misusing their social capital to create an environment of intolerance. I believe the opposite is true too!
🔚🔜 Bort Simpson Glad to see another gal on here! My boyfriend and my husband both made accounts but they haven't really posted anything.
Zero Edge You're probably right. I wonder why it is so hard to reach out from your circle and try and see the other side..
🐊 Andromeda Pie They just don't want to. I have seen racists up close. They believe in some devilish worldview where their white seed must be passed on and must conquer the world. And right now trans people are just earning their social freedom so they can't stand it and have to bitch about it. 20 years back it was gay people.
😏😎 Yt L. I think it makes sense to be mad at specific people for their specific wrongdoing, but it's irrational to attribute greater harm or malice to people just because their forebears may have done objectionable things. A modern Mongol isn't guilty for the crimes of Genghis Khan.
Zero Edge Maybe the art is in the conversation. Instead of delete maybe engage? Instead of ignore maybe ask question? How can the world become a better place if no one is talking to each other? Where does a racist find his inspiration? Where is his root? What is wrong with conversation? Maybe I am crazy.. But maybe writing and conversation is an art form and not enough people recognize that.
🐊 Andromeda Pie You could try but I'd say it's a rookie mistake. They are trolls and there is a reason people say don't feed them. It only encourages them. I just tried an hour ago to no avail. Check my replies in my profile. If you assume sincerity on their part they will troll even harder. Kindness, trust, love are not values that they recognize
😏😎 Yt L. Non-white groups throughout history have done their share of rape and pillage. Why would you single out a specific race and gender to complain about their history?
Zero Edge How can you weigh a person tho? Put your average person in a place of extreme power? How can anyone not be corrupt? Isn't that just part of human nature?
🐊 Andromeda Pie Maybe. Just focus your attention elsewhere. It sounds like you need a break. Indulge in the arts. Artists are crazy in a good way. Right now subreply is not a great place for your to be since it doesn't have curation or ability to block people. Stay away if it's better for your mental health.
Zero Edge Most content consumption leads to anger, hate, and mental pain. Not consuming content leads to mellowness and peace but an uninformed stance. I used to think the world was "nice" and most people were "good" but it seems harder and harder to find those things I used to think. Is the internet just very good at highlighting the "edge cases". Does the internet accurately represent the world and its opinion as a whole or is it just edge case after edge case.
